On April 17, 2017 the neighborhood inspection was completed by AMG.
Q. What is a neighborhood inspection?
A. The CC&Rs (A contract you signed when you bought your home) and the Rules and Regulations (adopted by the HOA board) set forth rules, regulations and policies for which you need to maintain your property. The purpose of these rules, regulations and policies is to maintain a high value neighborhood which benefits the majority of our members.
Q. How does it work?
A. The board directs the management company to drive around the neighborhood and visually inspect the neighborhood for “violations”. The categories generally inspected are: Trash cans (Are they stored out of sight and neatly), Trash (loose items left out in the open, building supplies, etc.), High Grass (Unkempt lawns), Pressure Washing (Does your home need it), Commercial Vehicles (Large box trucks, etc), Trailers, Boats, General Home maintenance issues.
After the inspection the ARC committee is asked to verify the violations. This means someone from the neighborhood follows up on the list presented to us by the management company to ensure the violations exist. We generally wait several days so we can be sure the “violation” wasn’t just a temporary issue which was resolved without any further action needed on the part of the HOA.
If a violation is noted by the management company and the ARC committee, you get a letter from the HOA. If you resolve the issue, nothing further will happen. If the issue is not corrected you will get subsequent letters and then HOA Board may move forward with legal action.
Obviously the goal is to not have to send out letters or involve lawyers, so please try to keep up with your home maintenance and landscaping.
